Commission begins work on Benue, Ebonyi boundary demarcation

Wed Nov 6th, 2019 - Benue

The National Boundary Commission (NBC) has begun preliminary work on demarcation of boundaries to end the protracted dispute between the people of Ngbo in Ohaukwu Council of Ebonyi State and their Agila neighbours in Ado Council of Benue State.

Members of the commission had, during its meeting in September, taken far-reaching decisions on the matter, with a view to ending the reported killings in the area, including a programme to aid the demarcation of the disputed boundaries of the two states.

The meeting, chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, and Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State, Kelechi Igwe, in attendance.
